DogTipper Review: Between living in the country and living with two large dogs, a lot of dirt gets tracked into our house. And that’s not to mention germs we might be walking in on our shoes or fecal material from the yard (or, worse, fecal material from our trails where coyotes, foxes, and other wildlife have not been using poop bags.) We don’t have an entry room so that means the dirt comes straight from the front porch into the living room/dining room/kitchen…yuck.
We were anxious to try The Amazing Mat, a doormat that features removable adhesive sheets designed to catch dirt, germs, hair, and more as you walk over the mat. It comes with 30 adhesive sheets; when one gets dirty, you remove it and start with a fresh sheet.
The back of the mat features a non-skid backing and it did a good job of not scooting around as we walked on it…
The top of our mat had a cute paw print design but you’ll find many other designs to suit your decor (but, really, what decor couldn’t be improved by a cute paw print?)
I was a little worried that it would be difficult to remove the adhesive sheet and get to the next clean sheet below it (have you ever let go of the tape and never been able to find the end of the roll?!) It’s not, though, thanks to tiny corners that make it possible to easily remove the sheet and to determine how many sheets you’ve got left before you need a refill:
So we gave it a try. Designed to be used at a busy entryway, we first put it on the front porch by the front door…but a cold night made the mat start to curl so we moved it just inside the front door.
Price: The Amazing Mat sells for $39.95 with a special introductory price of $29.95. Refill pads sell for $19.95 for 30 sheets; a pack of three refill pads sells for $29.95.
